In Cambodian Grrrl: Self-Publishing in Phnom Penh, cultural critic and artist Anne Elizabeth Moore brings her experience in the American cultural underground to Cambodia, a country known mostly for the savage extermination of around 2 million of its own under the four-year reign of the Khmer Rouge. Over four years, Moore transfers self-publishing knowledge and tools to her charges, women from rural areas who are now at university (a feat in Cambodia where women's education is undervalued). Moore will be talking about her experience at The Division Avenue Arts Collective next weekend but phones in from Chicago to give us a preview.
